A bit of a niche question. When you're inserting your fly lining (underlap side), do you pleat it or not? I have a couple of pairs of bespoke trousers where it has a small pleat (1/4") towards the bottom running across the fly tapering to nothing at the outside edge. I cannot see any reference to this in any literature but equally as I have realised over the past couple of years most tricks aren't written down.

In my opinion it is there that the linings edge(?word Kante ) folds towards the trouser and not towards the body.

Is the lining cut on the bias?
If it is cut as a straight piece of bias? If it is not shaped into a curve at the iron, once the outer curve is bagged out, the inner edge is still likely too long and the pleat is needed to reduce the excess on the inside curve.

Terri - exactly that - I have just tried it on a fly in a new pair of linen trousers I'm making (I'll probably finish them as summer ends) and works perfectly. There are so many nuances to even a pair of trousers. Still fascinates me...
